How many dining chairs should I buy?

Before buying dining furniture consider how you will use your dining area. Do you want to host regular diner parties, occasional diner parties or are you looking for a dining table for family meals only? Buy enough chairs to fit the table. A five piece dining set of four chairs and a table will be suitable for a family of four, a seven piece dining set of six chairs and a table will be suitable for a family of six.

If you buy a round table or extendable table to easily accommodate extra guests you may want to consider additional seating for when you are entertaining. Chairs not in use can either be stacked or moved to another room to be used as a ‘dress’ chair.

How much space is required around the dining table to comfortably fit the dining chairs?

Make sure there is enough space at the table to comfortably seat each guest. Puji sells an excellent range of tables in different sizes, so it is easy to pick the right one for your needs. With each table size Puji provides an easy guide to how many place settings the table will allow for. However, as a general rule ensure there is between 55 – 60 cms (21.5 – 23.5 inches) per place setting for a rectangular or square table and 75 cms (29.5 inches) for a round table. The table should not be too large or too small for the room. Allow enough space between the table and the wall so guests can comfortably pull out their chairs. For this you will need between 60 – 90 cms (23.5 – 35 inches). Extra space will be needed in the dining area if you have an extendable table to easily seat extra guests when needed.

What types of dining chair are currently the most fashionable?

Contemporary designs with clean straight lines and elegant proportions are currently very fashionable. However when it comes to choosing furniture for your dining room, the most important thing is to pick a good quality chair that not only looks great, but you know it will last. Select a style that is right for your dining room and suits your own personal taste.

Woven furniture is also particularly trendy and adds a striking alternative to solid wood chairs. Unlike solid wood chairs, the natural fibres are slightly flexible and allow some movement when you sit down. Woven chairs are stylish, popular and add a wonderful exotic and contemporary look to the dining room.

Can I mix and match dining chairs or should they all be the same?

Get creative in your dining area. Mixing and matching dining chairs creates an interesting look in your home. Team solid wood chairs with woven banana chairs for a relaxed, yet contemporary look which will really make your dining room stand out. Alternatively, mix leather chairs with solid wood chairs for a creative twist. Using chairs with similar shapes and materials can seamlessly bring together a co-ordinated look. Experiment with different designs and colours to find the look you like best. You don’t have to choose a matching table and chair set for your dining room, but select colours, designs and materials that complement one another.

Can dining chairs be used in other rooms?

Dining chairs are not just for the dining room, but can be used in other areas of the homes as well. Puji’s Crocco woven chair, for instance, looks great in a conservatory style area. With its elegant shape and high back, it can also be used as as a ‘dress chair’ in the entrance hall or to drape clothes over in the bedroom. Puji’s Shanxi leather carver chairs look wonderful as an occasional or desk chair. Puji’s Shanxi leather chair also looks beautiful with the Shanxi dressing table.
